MADISON (WKOW) – The Wisconsin Supreme Court is set to hear oral arguments in November for a case challenging Gov. Scott Walker's collective bargaining restrictions.
Last year, a Madison judge ruled that the restrictions were unconstitutional as applied to two unions representing Madison teachers and Milwaukee public workers. At this time, it is unclear whether the ruling applies to local government unions statewide but state attorneys have appealed the decision.
The 4th District Court of Appeals sent the case right to the Supreme Court saying the outcome has sweeping ramifications on public workers across Wisconsin.
The justices say they will hear arguments in the case on November 11.
